Asian Inspired Fried Rice, Millie's

Millie Johnson


We are eating out less and less, so I am creating my own versions of some of our favorites. This recipe is a great way to use up leftover rice. I usually plan and make a meal earlier in the week using rice and make extra, just for this dish ! Having a cup of pre-cooked, diced meat make this a really fast dish to fix.
At the time of posting this recipe I didn't have any, so I pounded one chicken breast thin, seasoned with salt and pepper, added a tsp. of coconut oil to a hot pan and seared it, cooking till done through and through. I then used that same pan to sauté the veggies in, adding oil.

1Dice all the veggies and meat of choice. I used chicken for this recipe. ** I didn't have any pre-cooked so I fried a chicken breast I pounded thin (to cook evenly) and seasoned lightly with salt and pepper.
